Lot description
"Portrait of a Girl 1" (2012) is a stunning painting from the internationally acclaimed oeuvre of rising star, South-East Asian artist Attasit Pokpong (Thailand, b. 1977). This painting belongs to the artist's ongoing "Portrait" series which are all surreal images of beautiful young women against monochrome backgrounds. This is one of Attasit's most fresh and exciting works to-date, painted in his iconic candy-color palette and signature cropped, close-up composition. This girl's docile expression invites one to gaze upon her visage as if recalled from a memory or dream. Her gentle expression is in dynamic contrast to her blue hair tied in braids and her perfectly painted, ultra-vivid pink lips. This painting measures 39.36 x 39.36 inches (100 x 100 cm), is unframed and in excellent condition.

Attasit belongs to a new generation of Thai contemporary artists who are making their mark both in Asia and now Europe. He received his Diploma in Art from Rajamonkong Technology Centre, Bangkok, Thailand. In May 2009 Attasit had a major exhibition in Shanghai, China and then again in Paris, France November 2009. His unique style has attracted considerable international attention, prompting exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France, the U.K., in Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, China, Singapore, Thailand), Australia and in New York and Los Angeles in 2010. The artist lives and works in Thailand.
